The Twelve Days of Christmas Cake

Start your countdown to christmas with a different cake each day. Each cake can be different not only in design, but you can try a different recipe. Why not Chocolate Elf one day and Santa Strawberry Shortcake the other. The wonderful thing about designing cakes is that you can deviate from any designated recipe and create something totally new. If you are worried about the twelve days of constant calories, just think about the cakes that you can donate or you will have on hand to have available at any holiday party. Cakes also make great gifts for those individuals that we rely on each day.

Family Bonding Time

Christmas cake making is a great way to get the family together in one activity. Put on some holiday music and try a new recipe from one of your favorite bakery chef’s. You will find new ways to bond with your loving family during the holiday season.

Bake a Cake, Give Cake

Share your prosperity with your fellow neighbor or those who are not as fortunate. Find a food drive or holiday kitchen that you support and decide to bake a cake or two to donate. You may never realise the people that will appreciate the efforts of your culinary skills.

From your children’s teacher to the doorman or mailman, a fresh baked holiday Christmas cake will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
